SEO Red Flag: Content Focus On Volume Not Value

Your content focus should be on quality, not quantity

There is nothing wrong with publishing content on a large scale. If you have the ability and the audience that craves it, by all means, push content out every month, every week, every day or even every hour. More power to you.

But don’t let your content guidelines be determined by volume.

Yes, you should have goals for producing content on a regular basis, on whatever schedule makes sense for you and your audience. But you should never let that schedule be the primary driver of your content strategy. Ever.

Your content strategy should have two primary goals:

  1. What your audience wants and needs
  2. What you are able to produce while maintaining high standards of quality

That’s pretty much it.

It doesn’t matter how many words you write or how often you publish. A great post can be as little as 100 words or can be thousands of words. It’s the integrity of the content that matters.

Not everything you write has to be a jaw-dropping masterpiece. Sometimes a simple reminder is exactly what your audience is looking for. The point is, write content for your audience, not for any artificial standard.

If your SEO has put together a content strategy based on frequency of posting without any concerns for the quality of each post, they are leading you going down the wrong path.
